This withdrawl has nothing to do with his "family and responsibilities at city hall". Despite Bill Clinton's endorsement, and trial lawyer money, he was getting crushed in the polls to Jerry Brown. He has no credibility. Of course, he had no problem in destroying traditional marriages, as he is already on his second marriage, admitted committing adultery with his best friends's wife, and the term marriage means nothing to him. Although I differ with Jerry Brown's political views, I respect him as a person of character. Unlike the sleazy mayor of San Francisco!

Grab your boots! Get ready for a load of moonshine from Moonbeam.

Remember Governor Moonbeam? He hasn't changed at all. Go Google "california governor's official portraits" and see what he selected to hang in the halls of the State buildings. Compare them to the other governor's selections. Is this what you want more of?
